    Wow, thats incredible..
    Texas usually gets that kind of weather, but this year we have had so much rain and the temperature has not hit 90 more than couple of days (yet) in Dallas...
    (not complaining!!!);)

    Too Hot!

    You're not the only one, my room temp. reads 100+....:crying::crying::crying:

    I had to coach at SGVBC today 11am-1pm, it was crazy hot. My student almost fainted. I almost went dehydrated too.

    Best place to go during the heat is the movie theater....:D:D:D

    I have a 30,000 BTU AC in the warehouse, but I didn't turn it on. :p

    No way, I keep the shuttles in my office where it's 77F. :D

    OCBC is air conditioned. They won't be roasted. Lucky kids.
    Now if they played at SGVBC, they will be crispy and well done like KFC chickens.....:D:D:D

    If I left my racket bag in the car, would the racket frame collapse from high tension and extreme high temperature?

    did u notice that your regular shuttles flew faster and farther?

    our summers are quite nice, 23-27 C (73-81 F), maybe a few days of 30-33C high but it's dry heat:)

    Yes, recently our 77s have been flying like 77.5 or 77.75s. No wonder my dink shot has been more effective. :p
